Montréal offers undeniable advantages for this
fast-growing company, and TradingScreen’s decision to come here is a winning choice,” said Chantal Rouleau, Minister of Transport and Minister Responsible for the Metropolis and the Montréal Region.

 

“I’m very proud to hail TradingScreen’s decision to set up shop in Montréal.
